    Well, should have been multiple choice all the way

    Firstly, I carry 2 or more guns, when on duty as a LE Sniper (Can't tell the name of the agency).

    These are:

    - Remington Model 700 .300 WSSM with AICS (my own gun)
    - SIG P226 issued by the agency. (always carried)
    - SIG SG551 SWAT for Shorter Range (also my own)
    - Barrett M82A1 for very long range (again my own)

    Then, when doing Sharpshooting Instructor work for the Security Staff os a Nuclear Plant, I have to carry at least one gun too.

    Can be: (All my own guns)

    - H&K MP7A1
    - SIG P226
    - Remington M700
    - Sphinx AT-2000

    And then comes the part, where you decide what you carry all day, even when not at work.

    That's:

    - Springfield P9 World Cup (also my own)

    Ok, the P9 can be seen as too large for a CCW, but hell, I wanna hit, and shoot a really good gun, when I am in need of. I could use many other guns, but the only gun I really trust, is this one.

    The last part, that could come to reality, would be Home Defense, and that would be really bad, as I would surely pick on the Full Auto guns in my home.
    Luckily, all the walls are of reinforced concrete, so there is no danger of hitting other ppl that the bad guy. (Ok, except if I take the M82 with AP Ammo)

    I've carried one daily for the last 3 years working for Loomis Fargo Armored. As a messenger I carried a SW99 .45, but now that I work in the vault I carry my 1st Generation HS2000, and have since sold the SW99. .45ACP ammo wasn't in the budget anymore

    All this praise of the SW99/P99 on this board have me wanting one again! In 9mm this time. Too bad the DA/SA guns are drying up. That was a sweet trigger.

    A lawyer that has received death threats. Family law will do that for you.

    "Don't wanna get killed for a lack of shooting back."

    People don't LIKE lawyers, for some unknown reason. Darned if I can figure it out.

    My best friend here is an attorney but not yet a CCW holder. As the chief defense attorney it may be a good idea for him.

    As an ex LEO I am vocal in my dislike for most lawyers, I dont hate the profession, its just been hijacked (like some claim Islam has been) so badly that I havent seen or heard of one fight for "JUSTICE" for years, its always about the LAW( or rather the loopholes that they find and use to get criminals off), Ill be the first to cheer for any lawyer (or Judge) who goes after justice instead of the "letter of the law" any day

    I can understand how you feel Scooter. Until this friend, I had a rather disdain for all lawyers and lumped them all into one group... bad. Just like any other group, there are good, bad and ugly. The problem is that we only see reports on the bad and ugly so that's what sticks in our heads.

    I actually was contemplating finishing my degree and going to law school but having been a plumber for over the last decade and being in a career that has very little respect I didn't want to go into another career that has even less respect than plumbers.

    Plumbers and lawyers are very similar. You hate us until you need us then we're the greatest there ever was... until you get our bill, then we're hated again.

    Sometimes I have quite a bit of disdain for the profession, myself. Every personal injury lawyer ad that I see on TV makes me realize it can be a scummy profession. It can also be a noble profession, though I think there is much less Atticus Finch than Dewey, Cheatem and Howe.

    However, keep in mind that what you call loopholes is what we call the Constitution. Like that 4th amendment thingy. And that 2nd amendment.

    I don't think the system itself is broken. What's broken are those that abuse it. It's been hijacked, exactly as you say. I love the Constitution, and the intent behind it. The purpose got lost somewhere around the time Earl Warren became Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. There's where judicial activism started, and a lot of our current problems began.

    Regardless, it's a profession that draws a lot of ire. And bullets....
